Sewing With Knits: 5 Wardrobe Essentials

  • rayon knit. this pattern is a freebie
  • comes in one size only on Burda. The neck and armholes are unfinished
  • as per pattern. Took no time even for a newbie.

Q&A with rowoman

Meg McKinney asked:
You look great in your new top. Where did you find the freebie from Burda? online? download? in a magazine? Thanks for showing us your new top.

Confessdeny asked:
Did you learn this top in this class?
rowoman answered:
no link to pattern is above. this class helps newbies choose the right stitches, needles, extras like elastic tape etc. Great for beginners sewing knits. I opted for this pattern when doing a T because I could :) The course provides 4-5 patterns (hoodie, t, dress, yoga pants/shorts) I just haven't the right fabric to do those yet.
Tracey Lowe asked:
Wow! Looks fantastic. I have always loved this style. Great job!
rowoman answered:
Thanks. I must say Ichigogirl got the collar just right. Will be trying to enlarge to my size soon. But I suspect the wow factor is in the colour. She gets comments from total strangers, "Where did you get that shirt"...and it literally took 30 minutes to sew, as no edges are finished. Washed and worn many many times already and still looking good
